You're unlikely to see one of these in Carms

 


I'm working on Anglesey for 3 days, and small groups of Glyphipterix schoenicolella were a feature of a bryo recording visit to Cyttir Tywyn Trewan, near Rhosneigr.  Its foodplant Schoenus nigricans (Black Bog-rush) isn't in Carms as far as I'm aware, though it is present at Crymlyn Bog (Glamorgan) and in 3+ Pembs sites.

The other moth I photographed today is on the Carmarthenshire list, although it is mostly recorded as a larva and I'm not sure if I've ever seen the imago before: Agonopterix angelicella at Rhoscolyn Reedbed SSSI.
